I have already asked one use to leave a mailing list I manage because
of this issue. Whether or not in (UK) law I or other list members (but
mainly me) may be liable for anything is a guess to yet be tested, but
I am not willing to either take that risk, or let stupid
people/companies/lawyers get the world used to this.
That particular mailing list is not public access, but nor is it
limited to members with legally binding contracts...
